Classic Seiko Automatic Diver

Pros:Best automatic diver in the world at this price

Cons:none

The Bottom Line: This is my favorite of the Seiko SKX divers. Go for it!


This diver is one of Seiko's SKX diver series. It was an oversea model. I am happy it is available here now. I am a huge fan of Seiko automatic divers. I have been using them for over twenty years. They take the abuse of swimming, diving, parachuting, climbing, recoil, and anything else just like the much more expensive Rolex Submariner and Sea Dweller.

There are some other Seiko automatic divers on the American market. The classic style divers are the SKX models. They all have the same case, crystal, movement, crown, hands, etc. The differences are in the dial and what band they come with.
This is the SKX 007. It has the back dial with round/oval markers and a black timing insert on the rotating dive timer and comes with a rubber strap (pressure vented, meaning it adjusts for depth when diving, or just plain fits well right here at the surface).

Another model, the SKX173 is just like this except it has rectangular markers on the dial.

The SKXA35 model is just like the SKX173, except the dial comes in high visibility yellow.

Now, the SKX175 is like the SKX007 we are talking about here. Except it has the black and red insert on the dive rotating timing bezel instead of all black. It also comes with a SS band instead of rubber dive strap.

Any one of these is a reliable, hardy, classic choice for an automatic diving watch.

I personally prefer the looks of this model's dial over all the others.

The only thing I do not like is that it has a mineral crystal. This is the glass over the face of the watch. The best dive watches like Rolex have a sapphire crystal. It is almost impossible to scratch a sapphire crystal. A mineral crystal is ALMOST as hard as sapphire. But you are more likely to end up with a scratch on it with hard use than you are with sapphire. But....
a sapphire crystal alone cost about 100 dollars.
